Oxfam is a global movement of millions of people who share the belief that, in a world rich in resources, poverty isn't inevitable. In just 15 years, extreme poverty has been halved. 15 more years and we can end it for good.

To spread that change and make it last, political solutions are also needed to tackle the root causes of poverty and create societies where empowered individuals can thrive. We will always act, we will speak out, and we won't live with poverty.

Where we work

Together with our local partners, we work in more than 90 countries as part of the Oxfam International confederation, to tackle the root causes of poverty and respond to emergencies.

Oxfam is a movement of millions of people, all working towards one goal - an end to poverty for everyone.

We can take on the big issues that keep people poor - like inequality, hunger and climate change - if we each play our part, however small it may feel.
